Factors Affecting Fire Damage Cleanup Cost

Damage from a small, fairly contained stove fire will be less expensive to repair than a damage from a more extensive kitchen fire. The size of the burned area and the type of the materials that burned will determine the final cost of cleaning and repairing the fire damage. Fires that consume natural materials, such as dry grass, produce less soot than those that consume synthetic materials found in many homes. Since cleaning soot is expensive, damage these natural fires cause will cost less to repair.

Price Range For Cleaning Fire Damage

Damage from a simple stove fire may cost around $2,000 to $5,000 to repair, but it may cost $10,000 to $30,000 to rebuild a typical kitchen after a larger fire. If a fire spreads beyond a single room, you may need to rebuild your home, which can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Optional Fire Damage Cleanup Services

  • Depending on the extent of the fire damage, many types of services may be necessary for complete fire damage cleanup. If smoke or ash penetrated the vents and the HVAC system, they will need to be thoroughly cleaned and deodorized to prevent smoke particles from being blown back into the house.
  • There may also be water damage to repair from putting out the fire.
  • Furniture and other possessions damaged by smoke, soot, or water may need to be removed to an off-site cleaning facility.
